to make sure that we are using for example the small business review process to ensure that the rules ask crafted can ease compliance where necessary especially with respect to smaller firms. smaller firms be they depositories jarmon depositories are by their nature less able to easily shoulder significant compliance costs tend to be more fixed than variable which means to the extent it firm is smaller on the compliance board and would be more biting and constraining and so the basic to make sure we are attentive as applied to the various regulatory requirements. >> which is one of my concerns. i keep getting that feedback from our small banks and credit unions about the compliance costs with the new rules coming out. within this efp, those are dillinger of disclosure issues as well as other disclosure forms. are you all communicating so when qr m comes out we are not going to have different ways of compliance issues for the small banking institutions? are you all talking together so it's going to be very fluid and we and are not going to have one rule come out but would then be modified

it was always pick as many fights as possible. no. i think -- i think you -- wherever you are, you use the event to your advantage and if you're going into a hostile audience -- for me, and i think usually for most politicians, it's to do what tim kaine is doing, by the way, from what i've heard across virginia very well, he's going to all of his enemies first and saying hey, listen, i understand you're not going to be with me, but i'm going to always listen to you. you know, i always would go into neutrals. on this stage, i don't think there was any doubt about it he was playing to conservatives, some would say cynically and he was playing to independents saying, hey, you know, all the stuff you heard about me i only tell people what they want to hear, watch this. and let me give you one more clip, here's mitt romney when he got booed talking about president obama's health care plan. >> i'm going to eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find, that includes obama care, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- [ boo ] >> of course, steve rattner, throughout the day, mitt romney
us from capitol hill. congressman, thank you for being with us. let's talk about the leaks and your concerns. do we have any indications that they could have come directly from the white house and that they could have been blessed by the president? >> you see, andrea, it's a whole panoply of leaks. it rises to the concern where you have even democrats raising questions about the origins of these leaks, and so we know a couple of things. the most damaging -- and i would argue, andrea, these are some of the most damaging leaks to our national security probably in my lifetime. serious, serious consequences. in some of the leaks it showed it had to have a high level of clearance, covert access to the information and access to the situation room and as a former fbi investigator that narrows that pull pretty closely. as we would say, that's a clue about where you can start looking for where these leaks could have originated. i think that's why all of the speculation both on democrats and republicans, it may have come out of the white house. >> we're talking about the number of books inclu
economic news three months in a row now. are people just used to it? is it baked in? do they just accept where this economy is? we hope not. we hope that we don't accept these numbers regardless of the politics of it. you hope people don't accept this as a new norm. >> do they think that mitt romney could do better? >> that's the big question. >> we're going to explore all of that this morning. let us know what you think. find us on twitter. rest of your headlines. a lot more to tell you '. there has been a drone strike in northwestern pakistan and killed at least 15 suspected taliban militants. pakistani intelligence says this happens in a village in north waziristan. four missiles fired at compound believed to be owned by taliban commander. this comes as tension grows over those american drone strikes in the country. it's the first strike since pakistan reopened nato supply routes this past week. george zimmerman is a free man yet again this morning. here he is leaving a florida jail after posting the required 10 pierce of his $1 million bond. is he now staying in a temporary safe hous
was going to make you feel more uplifted this sunday morning, not so much. so, you know, i used to question when you look at the numbers, the more people went on disability, than were actual jobs in our economy, do you wonder is this an unfortunately consequence of the economy or something greater behind it, are the qualifications easier or people are encouraged to go on social security disability? why the drastic increase? >> and how much into this unemployed number we have been talking about, 5.4 million individuals long-term unemployed and the president yesterday on the campaign trail in ohio and pennsylvania, sees this though as a step in the right direction. >> we learned that our business created 84,000 new jobs last month and that overall means that businesses created 4.4 million new jobs over the past 28 months, including 500,000 new manufacturing jobs. that's a step in the right direction. [applause] >> that's a step in the right direction. >> alisyn: so the number of new enrollees to disability went up 19% higher than the jobs added. so, obviously, there is a big sort of discrepa
economy. we have differences in our tariffs. that causes us to borrow money. the light borrowing against the store. in host: i heard tariffs in those comments. is there a trade policy and are we playing on a level playing field? maybe you can pick up that point. >guest: one of the big issues in terms of trade policy is how the u.s. responds and crafts its relationship with china. as of last year, the senate passed a tough bill to clamp down on the chinese currency manipulation. china would not call of manipulation, obviously. the bill was in the house but it is opposed by the obama administration. they don't want to hurt their relationship with china and house republicans have no intention of bringing this up. on the other hand, mitt romney has said he will declare china a currency manipulator on the first day of his presidency. it is on clearview will follow through with that because there are real geopolitical consequences to that. that is something we are seeing in the campaign. host: back to the farm bill -- if there were an emergency measure, how would the politics of that play out?
between willow and meredith were then evacuated. workers told us that police just came in and told them what was happening and to clear out. >> basically get everyone out, you know, safety first kind of, then secure the restaurant. and then it was just, like, you know, basically your mind takes you wherever, you know? >> reporter: police sent a robot in to inspect and then destroy the contents of that briefcase. it turns out there was a typewriter inside which did not pose a threat to the public. the person who sat down the suitcase has not been identified, but police say they do not think he had ill-intent leaving it unattended. many of the businesses remain closed. again, there was a farmers market open at the time right outside this shopping center, that, too, was shut down early because of this bomb scare. live in san jose, kimberly tere, nbc bay area news. >> kimberly, thank you. >>> despite mild temperatures here, a heat wave is gripping much of the nation from iowa to washington, d.c. in fact, the weather is being blamed for at least 30 deaths over the past week, and today excess
care. >> i care. >> legitimate baseball fans care, but it certainly is not as big a deal as it used to be because of interleague play. we see different players from different teams in both leagues all during the year. you can get any game you want on your baseball package on cable. doesn't have the same allure that it used to, certainly. >> yeah. mika. >> yeah. >> the battle over the bush tax cuts. >> here we go again. >> here we go. >> now it's -- because we were talking yesterday on the set in new york about the limit, the $250,000 limit. that could come back. it's growing over how much of the bush-era tax cuts to extend just for the middle class, or, perhaps, for the wealthiest americans as well. both candidates invoked the 42nd president bill clinton to frame their strategies yesterday. take a listen. >> i mean, the very idea of raising taxes on small business and job creators at the very time we need more jobs, is the sort of thing only an extreme liberal could come up with. this is the sort of thing that used to be in the democratic party in the times past. bill clinton called
